I like the glass boat if the hull is solid. But that hole in the floor scares me. Both have potential.

Oh if I do the fiberglass,and i am leaning that way, it will get cracked open like a clamshell and totally cleaned of rotted wood.

Hard to be impartial on a website called "Tinboats"! I vote for the Aluminum boat!

Polish the bottom to a mirror finish with sharkhide and re-paint the top from the water line on up white. New floor with a light colored vinyl or light grey carpet with a Center Console/live well and about a 40-50hp honda 4 stroke...Oh yea!

But then again.....How's the engine on that glass thing? A good running 70hp merc might be a selling pt.

I say buy both and put the merc on the aluminum boat!

The pic makes it look pretty deep and wide. I was thinkin it was like an old 1657 or something.

Still a nice boat and a lot less work than the Glass boat even if the motor is in good cond.

If its a glass boat your lookin for I would think you can find one without a GIANT HOLE in a ROTTED FLOOR, full of water logged foam for a decent price.

I think its about 60ish inches wide.

I bought the glass one for the steering/motor/controls. I got it CHEAP!!! like super super cheap.

but it has kinda grown on me. I like it and its somewhat rare I would say and I have always wanted a true Bass Boat.

That glass boat has some potential and, in my experience, working with fiberglass isn't really too difficult so long as you take your time.
